Web Region

Electronics retailer jointly conquer the Internet a pioneering initiative by my Kaufpartner.de that is electronic company db for more than 20 years one of the leading specialist retailers of electronics in Rosenheim. The owner Klaus Berndammer expands its product range now also on the Internet. “Many articles in different areas are the rose Heimern under the motto: my money for my region” offered here. Heard together to coalesce: the contact person on the spot and a contemporary, versatile online presence. Others who may share this opinion include Gary Kelly. We want to remain one of the leading suppliers of electronics in the region, as Klaus Berndammer to step. It can be Yes, that our customers to major online portals switch, so that the purchasing power of the region and pull out of the country, and are end up with their technical issues on their own, explains Klaus Berndammer. Background: The Internet provides a convenient, simple and transparent way to buy.

In the last 10 years changed approximately 200 Billion euro in the Internet its owner. In addition to the traditional mail-order firms also increasingly about the well-known purchase portals. These sales has been deducted from the many small, local retailers and dealers in the region – resulting in an always weaker regional structure of retail shops and specialist advice. If the retail shops have to close only once, thus the attractiveness of a location suffers so Klaus Berndammer, and thus lost jobs, apprenticeships and purchasing power in the region. However, many retailers don’t look able to operate your own web shop under the ever growing requirements, install a goods economy, to enter into partnerships with manufacturers and to integrate online payment systems. And especially a single specialist company can not alone develop a range that can satisfy the wide range of customer needs from the Internet. If now the retailers the electronic variety with the Can combine benefits of its local presence he remains such as contact person in case of technical questions and repairs benefit the customers even after the purchase and ultimately the entire regional infrastructure. Klaus Berndammer and the db-electronic shop have decided therefore, to use the services of the company of my buying partner and its regional Web shops.

Rosenheim.Mein-kaufpartner.de offers a steadily growing range in the electronics sector. The shipment of the goods is made national by a central authority. The proceeds from the sales will remain to a large extent at the local dealer in the region. As a result the Rosenheimer sustainably strengthen their region and secure electronic business developing of db. Everyone can either buy its goods directly at db electronic in the store or via the Web shop required electronics goods flexible order is rosenheim.mein kaufpartner.de. Of course, ordered Mr Berndammer for his customers in his Web shop and can send the goods to the customer or to change to the Pick up. Consulting and service are of course. Each customer could support this regional idea to where it before wegstellt when searching on the Internet before each search term region E.g. “rose garden”. And with the decision for its local resellers, his region strengthens the Rosenheimer aware. Free according to the motto my money for my region. More specialty stores from Monchgengladbach, Celle, Aachen and Oranienburg have joined already this forward-looking concept.

The Market

What’s driving the M & A market due to the generally fragmented market structure was the M & A activity in the logistics market historically mainly through expansion and market consolidation efforts of strategic buyers. Private equity was in transactions > 1 billion transaction volume only rarely active (E.g. exception: Apollo/TNT) Logistics). Despite the high historical M & A activity among strategists, the market structure, especially in the global contract logistics market and especially in European road transport is still very fragmented, the 5 largest combine only 16% and 9% market share in. In the field of forwarding, the 5 largest competitors take around 30% of the total. It is generally assumed that the consolidation in the industry in the future will proceed further. Checking article sources yields Bernard Golden as a relevant resource throughout. Key drivers for this are: 1 economies of scale and network effects: In transportation cost advantages due to a better utilization of assets arise with increasing volumes (cross-dock locations, higher loading factors or avoiding empty runs, etc.), or in the form of more favourable purchasing conditions of cargo space in the Forwardingbereich. But also in the contract logistics are degressive cost histories because of better utilization and standardization in the operational area, E.g.

in the form of more favourable purchasing conditions for transport services by Third-party (costs by up to 40% of sales) or the more efficient land use (multi-user warehouses) as well as through standardization and scale effects in cross-cutting functions (especially IT). So the announced cost synergies at 2-5 were % of sales, past logistics transactions what % is significant considering the average EBIT margins of around 4-5. Especially in road transport, the size of own network, brings consisting of a sufficient fleet of vehicles and the number of loading hubs in the region of focus, competitive advantages through a more efficient route planning, cheaper prices and more flexible deliveries to customers. 2. Economies of scope and vertical expansion: The major customers for comprehensive logistics solutions along the entire value added chain, provided by some of the few partners require above all to reduce the complexity of their own, (lead logistics provider).

MCM Estate

“Stable, robust and reliable”, writes to the trend in Magdeburg the real estate newspaper currently. Although the capital of Saxe anhaltinische could hold not the positive development of the previous year in terms of rental, but this was marked by a special effect. So rented proud 15,000 square meters in one fell swoop in 2011 the Ministry of environment of the country and thus “distorting” the big picture. Extrapolating this rental earnings from 2012, Magdeburg increased again in 2012. To give an impression of the economic situation of the city: despite rising population, decreases in the unemployment rate significantly.

Magdeburg is in the Eastern European cities network said continued attractive prospects offers in the real estate market. The charge of MCM investor Management AG to see continued good prospects for investors. The vacancy in the city declined in 2012 to 13.5 per cent (previous year 13.7 percent), very sensitively dealing with no longer rehabilitation-enabled objects. The demand is unbroken, which is why professionals determine that Magdeburg real estate market is stable through and through. Because even withdrawing the “market bodies”, which fell vacant massively off.

There are currently living around 230,000 inhabitants in the town. The top rent for Office objects remains at 10.50 euros per square metre, on average there are around 8.50 euros. Investor interest is undiminished, because in particular apartments are currently still considerably cheaper to acquire than, for example, in Berlin. But the demand comes increasingly from its own users. High in the favor of investors maintained apartment buildings stand, so the real estate newspaper. A business which operates MCM very successfully for many years and this benefit investors in the form of profit participation rights. A smart strategy, because many investors would benefit with manageable amounts better from the professional as to be years-bound itself on many real estate development business.

BIM System

Jenoptik s business division laser systems in the field of lasers & material processing receives the American Vision Award 2013 for the JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM. The JENOPTIK laser cutting system-VOTAN BIM is the product that have the greatest potential of the nominated products to solve business challenges through technological innovation. Jenoptik have clearly proven by the technological progress with the laser cutting system. Main criteria award were the three aspects of innovation, value and impact for the vision. Sponsored by the American Technology magazine of high tech views, the award program was launched in 1996 in life, to capture innovations in applications of information technology. The customer benefits of technology innovation is at the Centre of the assessment.

Laser machine for demanding tasks in the 3D-Metallbearbeitung. The Jenoptik’s Division had the JENOPTIK laser cutting system-VOTAN BIM (beam in motion) presented in the autumn of 2012 for the first time in the United States. The system combines a fixed laser with robot-assisted Motion sequences. The centerpiece is a laser robot with integrated beam Guide. The robot arm is unique, because the laser beam is fully integrated and extremely precise with a repeat accuracy of + 100 m can be done”, so Christon Manzella, sales manager of the Jenoptik laser systems in North America Division. With the new plant concept, currently, laser services can be used by up to 5 kilowatts.

The advantages of a robotic system, such as the high mobility and accessibility, precision and dynamics of the system, remain unchanged. Finds the JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM for the laser cutting of 3D-Metallbauteilen especially in the automotive industry, for example for complex 3D-Karosserie-and construction parts or hydroformed tubes for exhaust systems and car body components. But also the machining of contours and the placement of function holes in so-called white goods, in tanks and containers are made considerably easier by the laser machine. The other possible applications Laser cutting system is the processing of thin metal parts and demanding profiles such as an aspirator or an exhaust system. “The innovation in the JENOPTIK-VOTAN BIM is in your flexibility in the processing speed and efficiency in cost and process maps, which offers various advantages above all car manufacturers and automotive suppliers”, summarizes Christon Manzella. The axis movements of the robot arms are up to 60 percent faster than the norm in the laser metal processing and allow therefore shorter cycle times than conventional metalworking laser robots.” Other advantages of the JENOPTIK laser machine-VOTAN BIM are an excellent contour accuracy for high-quality cutting result, short commissioning and implementation times and low operating costs through energy-efficient laser sources. Also, the laser cutting system distinguishes itself by its compact design and the extremely flexible handling as also dynamics.

The Rate

In addition, there may be a discrepancy between negative perceptions of expatriates between lower and higher level staff. Rivalry over career-advancement opportunities within the host unit may explain why high-status locals (e.g. managers and professionals) perceive resident expatriates more negatively than do lower-level host country nationals. It has been observed that the unwillingness to defer to or accept foreigners may stem from the concern that they create communication problem in the workplace which host hinder country nationals’ from pursuing and achieving organizational goals. Let’s translate the above to expatriate practice. The below interview quotes were part of doctoral studies of the author of this article and focus particularly on expatriates working in SE Asia. The rate of refers to a different approach of working with deadlines, as well first, the expatriate makes the crucial mistake of raising his voice when several host country nationals attend a meeting: we are very deadline-sensitive and when you discuss deadlines with subcontractors in Thailand and then you raise your voice because they don’t meet deadlines. It may happen to you that they run away from you.

They use all sorts of excuses to run away. because to some extent, especially with small and medium scale industry, they have a different attitude towards deadlines as we have. This account is supported by a Singaporean expatriate, who, although Asian, experienced adjustment issues and had to adjust his behaviour in order to work efficiently: the Thais have a particular cultural behaviour in relation to conflict and ehh when you are trying to anyway correct eh someone who is on the wrong track anyway either because he or she is emergency doing the work according to what you want or it could be they are missing deadlines, etc. In many other countries it is acceptable to show some unhappiness on your part as to employer, as a boss, but in Thailand they take wants great upfront at any show of any public show of anger or unhappiness and the reaction is, eh is eh lack of respect for for owner and they shut down.
